Oil pumpers, smokestacks and flowers - ditto!

What the hell? There's something in the water lately - found another strange visual pairing for Badland here, a promo that Helios did back in 03 for Tekko, a 3D festival. Richard Switzer at Helios tells us that this was also on Stash DVD #1.

also available in the archive here.

Now compare, here' something a Serbian MoGraph company Fried Pictures just did. Recognise some of the industrial landscape, the shots of smokestacks, oil pumpers and it all exploding with flowers a the end, plus the whole colour palette? Deja badland vu!

Check it out here on Fried Pictures site.

Pretty remarkable coincidence if it is one. To me, this looks more like demo love. Side by side shots inside.

Side by side shots of boths ads. A strange synchronicity isn't it?
